The Talent Quest


The Talent Quest

“Are we next yet ? “ I asked. Mr Coakley came in front of the crowd announcing that we were next. My heart started pounding as I walked to get a chair.

It was Rachael, Latai and I that were performing. We were singing a song called ‘Lean On Me’.
Sitting down with my hands on the ukulele shaking. I looked at Rachael, wondering when to start. Rachael and I started strumming. I just kept looking at Latai so she could start on time. I turned to focus on strumming to make sure I have the right cords.
Latai started to sing. I heard her voice wavering. Next I noticed tears came rolling down her eyes. She stopped to wipe it away. Amazingly, everyone started to sing along with her. I felt like I was going to cry too, but I kept on strumming.

I love music it's always great to see the young children who have a interest for music as music makes life more enjoyable and music gets out minds through times of struggles.Keep up the great work. Cecelia Tamoaieta.(Rosalina's mum)
